Building Control in Hemel Hempstead

Whenever you want to extend your home or make major changes to your workplace, you will need to consult with the best Approved Inspector, Building Inspector or District Surveyors in Hemel Hempstead. This is necessary to stay in compliance with the requirements of the Building Regulations. There are also some very obvious advantages for you as the owner in getting your plans checked and property inspected by Building Control. You won't be able to tell whether the plan for your home is compliant at an early stage unless an expert goes through it thoroughly. This can save time and money in the long run.

Guidance on the requirements of the Building Regulations is enclosed in the Approved Documents which can be downloaded for free from the internet. When plans are forward the Building Inspector will check your plans against these approved documents. It is possible to make changes at a later date however these need to be discussed with Building Control. Once the plans are approved the works will be inspected on site.

As an alternative to Local Authority Building Control, you can appoint an Approved Inspector who will check your plans and visit site to assist you with the duty placed on you to comply. The process is seen as being more proactive and commercially aware especially when looking at Domestic Extensions and Office Fit Outs.

The expenses you incur in getting plans checked and inspections carried out is the Building Control fee.

On top of that if Building Control require a SAP or SBEM Calculation you may also have to pay a fee to a separate professional, however this can often save you heating costs at a later date.
